Abstract
In the study, analyzes and define the agricultural target price insurance. Then researches the mechanism of the premium subsidies and direct subsidies and think that the premium subsidies will result in losing efficiency. Find the causes and extent of efficiency loss and concluded By constructing the expected return model of Chinese farmers and insurance institutions: Market risk is key of agriculture and implementation of the target price insurance need to rely on government subsidies. The total subsidy shall be equal to the actual subsidy and efficiency loss. The efficiency loss of subsidies was paid for negative externalities caused by the moral hazard and the greater the loss of efficiency, the lower the actual farmers' subsidy effect.
